LinkO-the Girly Version

in Everyday Lessons

I’m not sure why, but this week’s links all seem to be a little on the “girly” side.  In other words, they all just seem to be about womanly things.  I am a girl.  “Ah-hem” a lady…So, I guess that fits.  Anyway, enjoy the links and have a great weekend.

Oh, and by the way, welcome to all those who are visiting Burning Bushes. In the first 6 days of March, this little site has had nearly 3500 UNIQUE visitors. Is that crazy or what?  If you’re new here, stick around.  We’d love to have you walk through this garden of burning bushes with us.

Study to be a SAHM. This is a great post about the importance of preparing for being a mom and wife.  I resonate with so much of this article as I spent a great deal of time preparing for my career but not thinking that much about how to manage a household.  If you’re managing a home or thinking you may at some point in your life, read on.

Modesty doesn’t start with the Hemline. I just discovered this blog.  It’s written by a mother who’s serving as a missionary in Asia.  She is hosting a great week of posts this coming week about modesty.  I’m pumped because I know the issue is important but I don’t know a ton about it.  This particular post has a ton of great resources on the issue.  Read on and lower that hemline.

Raising Children in Every Stage I linked to Girl Talk’s blog a week or so ago regarding their series for the Single woman.  This is an inspiring note about 3 generations of single women who have pushed hard to bring up children even when they had none that were ‘biologically’ their own.

How to reflect Christ when service is lousyThis is an insightful post that challenges me to think about my reactions in a time when everyone’s feeling the economic crunch.  I tend to think that the crunch has no effect on me but this post reminds me that the effects are unavoidable and so I must make a decision about how I will respond in a Christ-like manner.

More passion and adventure in marriage I’m loving this blog on marriage.  Here’s a quick list of 7 ways to make life as a married couple a little more JAZZED.

Loved the “Study to be a SAHM” article! So many great things in there. I wish I would have been more frugal earlier in our marriage as well. Just a few months ago, I starting tracking every dollar that I spend each month, and it has really changed my spending (and my heart). I’ve cut out hundreds of dollars a month, and really made each dollar count more. I write down big expenses that we have coming up, and then work to save for them each month. My husband really appreciates my extra level of effort these days, especially since I’m the big spender for our family of 5, and he’s the sole source of income.
